media to make your elected officials accountable. there is no reason they ought to be taking recesses when they are facing a sequester frankly. the debt ceiling back in 2011. half our time in the senate between january and june, half of our time was not spent on legislative business. in fact in 2011 alone, it was one of the fewest number of days we've been in session since 1992 and here it was coinciding with one of the event that created the highest level of policy uncertainty of any event over the last 20 years, surpassing the wars, surpassing the financial crieses, september 11th. just to name some major events. and that debt ceiling debacle did more to disrupt the public's confidence in the integrity of the political process in washington. so you have to make your elected officials accountable. have you social immediate yafment you can build an online community snainsly and you get a message multiplire. by doing that you can find out where your law makers are. are they in session five days a week? they should be working. these are things you can be doing now. these are simple solu

conservative states, north carolina louisiana alaska. arkansas, up for election in 2014 and this is an effort to protect them, to keep them from having to vote on something that's not popular in their home state. cenk: that's absolutely right. david, how many times have you heard we need to protect conservative democrats by never ever doing anything progressive in the senate, because they need to be protected? >> it's been the standard formula for democratic. democratic strategists might argue that kept us in the senate. at the end of the day, people, we should all be asking what were those election victories for if you're not even willing to put in the underlying bill, a proposal on assault weapons ban that is supported by the majority of the country. if you're not willing to use your political capital why are you being elected to office. cenk: i want to blow your mind a little more. harry reid said today that they might not have 60 votes for federal gun registry. do you know how many -- i'm sorry, just a background check. that would be 92% 92% of americans support it, but they might not hav
still are very scared of what happened in 1994. the narrative that emerged from that election was a vote for the assault weapons ban contributed to the democrats losing their majority in the house and people in the senate and in the congress don't want to relive that, for better or worse. >> people like tom foley out in spokane. you're right. speaker of the house lost in that race. >> democratic senators from red states where mitt romney ran are vulnerable. here we have mark pryor of arkansas, begih of alaska, mary landrieu and a lot of these people who are passionate on gun rights will remember every election from now on and vote accordingly against these people. >> well, chris, it's true that i would suggest to senators that there's some things worse than not being re-elected. but i also think they give the gun lobby way too much credit. let's take harry reid, who has coward before the gun lobby if harry reid thinks it's gun lobbyists who got him back in the election, he's nuts. he lost the male vote. it was the obama coalition of union voters, young voters who put harry reid back in o
him. not an elected official, but a bureaucrat doing this. this is the problem and the concern i have for the future of the usa and i do not own a gun. thank you. g: i mean, that is a valid point. it is important to point out that all of the measures under consideration, the assault weapons ban, the prohibition on high-capacity ammunition magazines, they would not be retroactive. the government would not take away guns that someone currently owns. they were just ban you from being able to purchase the gun in the future. that is why we have seen so many long lines at the gun store, where people are buying weapons they fear might be banned in the future, but the government would not take them away if you already own them. host: we saw a piece recently in "bloomberg businessweek" looking at the power of the nra and the debates over guns. they go over some items for gun control opponents to remember him calling them "hard realities. why is that not translating into votes in congress? guest: it is partly because the gun rights groups, the nra, manufacturers, sporting associations, have bee
. -- disease dizzily in washington is people care more about the next election than the future of the country. if we get to a grand bargaining, you would have some people quit worrying about whether or not to get reelected and fix the country. if we do not, it will be about people protecting their interests and their political position. the country will suffer. >> on that point, the house this week past by most measures what would be considered a highly political document -- their budget. it is a political document. >> this is highly political. lex i am not disagreeing. neither of these have a chance of becoming law. at are you a your colleagues not more time finding a middle ground instead of going through show but? -- showboat's? >> they want to get paid. that is number one. where finally a budget you can offer amendments and highlight things that need to be changed in the federal government is an important exercise. , 76example, last night senators voted to eliminate the medical device tax. if you put that in the budget, if it is allowed to come up, it will go through the senate and throug

[ ♪ music ♪ ] >> john: good evening i'm john fugelsang and this is "viewpoint." thank you for joining us. if you thought that senate democrats were serious really serious about taking on the nra and passing major gun control legislation after the newtown school massacre, well, i hate to disappoint you but "the new york daily news" got it right with this devastating cover page. "shame on u-s on us, indeed. harry reid moved to drop california senator dianne feinstein's proposed assault weapons ban from the
winners for us. what we found in the election is while we're winning the arguments on spending and math, we're losing sort of this emotional cultural vote out there in presidential elections. and it didn't just happen overnight, luke. i mean the fact is our parties have a tough time over the last 24 years winning decisive presidential elections. and it's our job as a party to get to the bottom of why that is. and that's what we're trying to do. so, you know -- >> okay. let's talk about that emotional cultural vote. your predecessor said this this morning on "morning joe" about the issues you have in minority community. >> how does he reconcile his agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist? you can show up any time. it's what you say and what do you when you get there that matters most to people. >> so the former chairman steel is attacking you right there saying that you're not doing enough in terms of minority outreach, that it's not a real serious plan on your guys' part because of the voter id law supported a lot of swing s
to get to is the political dynamics in terms of how it affects elections. and the biggest disease in washington in my opinion, is people care more about the next election than they do the future of the country. so if we get to a grand bargain ul have some people come off and quit worrying about whether or not they want to get reelected and try to fix the country and if we don't it will be about people protecting their political positions and the country will suffer markedly from it. >> on that point, the house this week passed what by most measures would be considered a highly political document, their budget. the senate is getting ready to pass its own budget which is another political document. neither -- >> it is just as highly political. >> i am not disagreeing. neither has a chance of becoming law. so i wonder why you and your colleagues aren't spending more time trying to find middle ground instead of going through what are effectively show votes. >> they want to get paid. and if they don't pass the budget they won't get paid. that's number one. number two, is having finally
to the specifics. watch for the senators from red states up for re-election and the pressure is greatest on them. they are away two weeks now from washington, back home, and there will be pressure on them. they will hear from their constituents about what to do from this. if you don't have much support, if any, among republicans, you need those democrats to get it through. >> hey, mark, give me a sense of harry reid's role in this. he wants to keep that title senate majority leader. navigating through these ice floes of this. >> it's already on the side of those who would like to see a large package, including a pretty big risk background check provision. it's not clear to me what more opponents can be to put pressure on senator reid. senator reid has a long history with the nra. they did not support him in his re-election race and i think he is looking for a path that not only protects his own views on gun control and not only tries to accommodate the white house but try to protect the majority. i think he is very stensive not just on guns but a range of issues too. all of these democrats are u
's list -- reviews you can trust. oh, angie? i have her on speed dial. >> well, there's our election music back again. so soon? maybe not. and maybe not too soon. one of america's most respected political forecasters is today offering his first full prediction of the 2014 mid terms. and you know president obama has been focused on those, as a lot of his behavior since he won his second term has we are told been focused trying to recapture the house for the democrats. and our next guest has an eye looking ahead on the president's chances of doing that. larry sabado, good to see you again. >> nice to see you and glad people can't reach through the television to strangle. >> megyn: have you enjoyed your break and have a nice time? you've been putting it to good use, trying to forecast the next big election. as i say you're not alone. the president seems focused on the goal of reclaiming the house for the democrats and the democrats do indeed have a much higher approval rating in the house than the republicans. and so you say what about the dems' chances of doing that? >> well, they're c
trying to figure out why they lost so big on election night. they lost african-americans, asian americans, latinos, young people and women. those are big problems but republicans are ignoring the real solutions. look, i think you're going to continue to have a problem. >> the problem is with their policies. there is no nice way to tell seniors you're changing social security. to tell latinos we're profiling you, we're suppressing your vote. we don't need a smile. we need new policies. thank you for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> religious war. let's play "hardball." good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. i'm not washington. let me start tonight with this. you can't steer a car with the engine off. it's problem with the republican party today. get rid of the cultural right, abortion and gay marriage, all those began who moving to the republican party over prayer in public school years ago and you kill one giant engine. get rid of the whackos as john mccain cats them and you lose another engine. all the libertarians who just want government out of their
or $20 million in every election cycle literally buys vehicles, because the american public doesn't president in our democracy. if the listeners out there did one thing and one thing only one take away right now, it's call the -- the congress the switchboard, 202-224-3121, ask to speak to your elected officials wherever you are from whatever state, whatever district, and tell them to stand up to the gun industry. stand up to the nra and their nonsense that is killing 87 americans every day, require a background check for gun sales, prohibit the sale of magazine ammunition magazines, you know, over ten rounds when police are carrying 13 and are out gunned by criminals, and then let's bring the assault weapon ban up for a vote. it's the common denominator used in all of the major mass shootings in public places, the american people want it, the majority of gun owners support it, and it's simply the nra and their blood money contributors and the gun industry that are keeping our kids from dying unnecessarily from gun violence. >> michael: i was so frustrated
election. stricter photo id laws in pennsylvania and shortening the early -- taking away the early voting in sunday in florida. my colleague took him to task on that. let's listen to michael. >> how does priebus reconcile his approach and agreement with voter registration policies that many in the black community view as anti-black, racist. you can show up any time. it's what you say and what you do when you get there that matters most to people. >> priebus was asked about steel's criticism right there this morning by luke russert. he dodged the question. i think you will see the dodge. let's watch. >> what's your response to him? >> well, i'm not going to -- i'm not going to engage in an argument with michael. but, you know, the fact of the matter is you have to have the resources to be able to have an effective ground operation in minority communities. if you don't market and brand your party on a regular basis i think that you're going to continue to have problems. that's a big piece of what we're trying to do here. >> you know, it was well advertised by the republican party, not by yo
. with dustwuns it will be a major election issue for democrats opposing strong gun laws. in other words, the real democrats won't show, which in an off year would be a very bad idea. if there's a credible primary challenge, a vote would absolutely hurt an incumbent democrat. that's from howard green. let's look at they states now. it looks to me, sam, that you have states like out west, i want to see this list of human. pryor in arrange saw, in arc, mary landrieu, kay hagen, there's a lot of senators who have to run in conservative states, mitt romney states. how do they deal with this issue this. >> you know the left, the progressive community hasn't made that much of a stink about the assault weapons ban. that might be because they recognize the political difficulties, but my sense is they recognize the assault weapon is using a very small actual number of violent crimes, violent gun crimes. they think there's studies that suggest it's down to about 2%. they recognize the bill would have a much bigger impact on reducing gun violence. so when i talk to progressives, they don't get caught up over
for re-election in those kinds of states. so we're seeing some of this debate shifting to the states. i mean, because of this difficulty of getting these federal laws, some states have already started passing their own. colorado's governor signed the law there yesterday. we saw the very sweeping law in new york, although already they've had to back off a little bit on magazines because the problem is they didn't actually manufacture the kind of magazines they were talking about. having said that, rana, could this be where this debate is shifting? joe biden's somewhat optimistic belief notwithstanding. >> i think so. i think new york is going to get attention no matter what because of mayor bloomberg being involved in this issue. again, i hope he continues strongly down this path because i think he has the power to sort of look across both sides of the aisle and really bring some unity here. i think it's interesting that some of these western states are actually moving ahead and passing laws. i think that goes to the point that we have this idea that, you know, particularly in the west a
government. and is somewhat weakened after a tough re-election fight. so from the white house perspective, he comes, the president comes here at a pretty good time to try to reach out to the israeli people. try to let them believe that he really does care about israel. that he has their back. they've been very much supported by the united states militarily. the iron dome missile defense system. but for some reason israeli people, perhaps because of the president's 2009 speech in cairo. there is a feeling in israel that he has not shown them the love. so he's going to try to do that on this trip. he's going to go to the historic founder of israel, the hertzel monument. to show that he doesn't believe that israel's roots began only after the holocaust. and that he agrees with israel's timeline that it goes back to millennium. he's going to see the dead sea skrols. he'll pay homage to israel's deep rots and go to the west bank, go to ramallah and speak with the leader of the palestinians, try to get more of a warmer relationship. then they're talking about iran. and iran is front and center. he
think also that he is looking at the fact that he has some democratic seats up for re-election in 2014. and in 2014. and in some states that it's going to be very difficult to hold. places like west virginia and arkansas. and so he's, he's really not quite ready. i think to sort of put his members on the line for this. so he will allow these to be offered as amendments from the floor. but there are also likely to be some amendments from the other side. it was interesting, too, to see vice president biden yesterday, up with mayor bloomberg. saying that the white house is basically not giving up this fight. but it sure doesn't seem how you get these things done. >> i thought, i'm glad you made that point. i thought joe biden saying -- remember newtown, pointing his finger, very telling. because particularly joe biden is someone who understands the math of the senate you've just laid out. john, do we, at this point, so now the big piece of the bill now appears to be background checks. can you give me your assessment of the political landscape? does that and the other few things that are a
if you would criticize the president, as it would pre-election. >> jon: and more from the sequester fear playbook. >> senate leader harry reid sinks to a new low trying it tie the deaths of the u.s. marines to the sequester cuts. and a new study tells how the political press failed in their mission leading to the election. details next on news watch. tudy by the pew research study for excellence in journalism examines a personal portrayal of candidates in 50 major news outlets over a ten week period. they found 72% of the coverage has been negative for barack obama and 71% has been negative for mitt romney. back in 2008, 57% of media coverage was negative for john mccain and 31% for barack obama. but the real story is where those narratives come from, the study shows, jim, that political journalists are not really investigating, but sort of following the narrative laid out by the campaign. surprised? >> not really. there's a limit to what a reporter watching a candidate through six stops a day. do you want them to step back and say-- maybe you do, but their job and people watch and the n
behalf and political benefit in the case of the united states to help them win election. he was saying your political leaders respects going to take the risks unless you push them and force them to take risks. it was an interesting play. particularly coming as it did after what he said in the press conference. >> bret: i would attribute that to rhetoric. look, obama understands that with what is happening around israel, egypt in hands of the brotherhood, rockets landing today from gaza, chemical weapons probably loose in syria. hezbollah on the northern border. and iran today announcing it would destroy tel aviv if there is an israeli attack. in that kind of uncertainty and hostility, no way they could be asks to take risks today. number one priority is iran, number two is syria. >> bret: last thing on iran. he reiterated iran must not get a nuclear weapon. and cannot be contained. peres said america is looking for peace but if somebody threatens peace america is not a chicken. >> this whole conversation, i don't see thissed are call shift that you are portraying. israel go beyond the
much about in the election last year, paul ryan keeps the savings that obamacare would generate, but eliminates the benefits. the revenues that come from some of the taxes on medical devices and other things, they keep the revenue that comes from the affordable care act, but they want to cut the benefits. so thouis is really about an ideology. the wealthiest americans have essentially captured the republican caucus. and what we see in the ryan budgity or in anything that has to do with the affordable care act, anything that has to do with the smart investments that we know we need to get the economy growing again, those are off the table. big tax cuts for the wealthiest americans that has to be made up by somebody and we know who that somebody is. >> thank you for coming in. there is no huge surprise that the ryan budget overwhelmingly passed in the house or that it failed in in the senate, but three senators voting against it, rand paul, ted cruz, mike lee. that's a new thing, tea partiers saying i'm even more conservative than paul ryan. is that the message? >> yeah. that is t
finishing first last night in a special election, advancing to a runoff in two weeks in his bid to win a house seat. he picked up 37% of the vote, well short of the 50% needed to avoid a runoff. sanford calling his victory humbling. >> the voters care about is not my personal journey, what they care about is what am i going to do if elected to watch out for their pocketbook and their wallet. >> sanford was forced to step down as governor after lying about an extramarital affair. if sanford wins next month's special election, he'll face off against democrat elizabeth colbert-bu colbert-bush. >> people love a comeback story, don't they? >> he says he is going to support his sister. >> all right. one more story to tell you about, folks. the man whose 911 call may have prevented a campus massacre at the university of central florida speaking out saying how it all went down. police say suspect james cumaran pulled the fire arm at the ufc dorm when his roommate came out to investigate the suspect. allegedly pointed an assault rifle right at him. here's what he told anderson cooper. >> i was
relationship. both of them have been recently re-elected. they more or less are on the same wavelength when it comes to israel's security. and the two of them are going to do the best they can to make this trip a success for their own domestic political reasons as well. >> dana, ten years ago, as you know, we started a war on the basis of false information. today we're looking at a war in syria where the question of who is using chemical weapons, even if they are using them, can't be confirmed. is it your view, dana, that our reluctance to engage in syria is a direct result of our experience in iraq? >> well, certainly it's a response to that, martin, but also the situation in syria is a lot more ambiguous and is not exactly clear what can be done there. but certainly the hesitation in responding here, not necessarily hesitation, but a skepticism about whether reports are to be believed or not, is very specifically a reaction to the gullibility that was expressed a little over ten years ago that led us into that war. so that's why there is every reason to be taking this cautiously and slowl
and that philosophy is viewed by about 57 of colorado's 62 elected sheriffs. i just think that, for instance, there's no way for me to know that a magazine is in possession of an individual we come in contact, was acquired before or after the ban. and i don't believe that a magazine capacity limitation will solve the problems we're facing with just about 15 minutes of practice, sir, i could have you -- you're doing a magazine exchange, in about two seconds. so the mass shooters could still fire the same number of rounds with only a limited extra number of seconds. >> right. but with respect, mr. sheriff, you're in a state, which has just brought in these laws. and one of the reasons they brought them in was what happened at that movie theater in aurora in colorado. where a deranged young man called holmes walked in and had four weapons, including assault rifles, and including 100 bullet magazines. now, you can't tell me that he could not have been stopped earlier if he hadn't had a magazine with 100 bullets in. and that's the point of this, isn't it? >> well, certainly, on the surface, it is. but,
in his state by state elections for the 2012 election. just imagine what numbers guru nate silver can do for your march madness bracket. >>> the world lead -- 70,000 people have already been killed in syria's two-year-long civil war but now reports that forces have started using the kind of artillery that could kill that number of people in a matter of days. i'm referring to chemical weapons. as of now the reports are unconfirmed. if true, it is unclear who fired them. each side blames the other. i'll bring in nick walsh standing by in beirut, lebanon. the rebels say the government killed 25 people with a chemical weapon. help us out here. who is telling the truth? >> reporter: it still isn't really clear, jake. we don't have confirmation chemical weapons were used but there are two separate incidents. one in a city in the north, aleppo, in which the regime says it was hit by a chemical weapon fired by rebels and the russian government backing that up one activist saying this seems to have landed between rebel and regime lines and may have hit civilians in the regime area and regime troo
the election but continues to win policy. also on twitter fred wilder says when did senator reid become the most powerful republican in the united states. i want a real democrat as a majority leader. teamster said sadly, this is true, senator feinstein was against filibuster reform so she is now reaping what she was sown >> bill: she was not there with tom harkin and others. and geoff merkley for oregon who wanted to get rid of that filibuster, but she was on the other side. well, sadly for her. maybe she regrets it now. ron is out in elgin, illinois. hey, ron what do you say? >> normally, i would say good morning, bill. but it's not a good morning. the leaders have failed us again. this issue just irritates me right to the core of my bones. >> bill: yeah. >> caller: we have lost our soul as a nation if 203rd graders gunned down in less doesn't turn this nation to do something about the assault weapon ban, i don't know what will. >> bill: go back to the example of we talked about it, australia australia. right? when they had the brutal massive killing back t
democratic senators who voted against the budget plan, all of whom are up for re-election and one, frank lautenberg from new jersey, he didn't vote at all. meanwhile, politico reporting senator tim johnson from south dakota not planning to run again in 2014. that puts yet another democratic seat in play. another notable democratic senator planning to step down, michigan's carl levin. yesterday on her facebook page, former governor jennifer granholm announced not to run for his seat. >>> and the president is on his way home right now. president obama spent four days in the middle east meeting with israeli, palestinian and jordanian leaders. his last stop to jordan's ancient city of petra, known to some as one of the seven wonders of the world. known to others as home to indiana jones' excellent adventures. >>> president obama and his team are enroute, home from the middle east. but they left one member of their party behind. secretary of state john kerry. martin fletcher is live for must tel aviv with more. martin, good to see you, sir. who is kerry planning on meeting with? >> reporter:
a runnoff election we're told next month. if he pulls through on the republican side and this is interesting, he would then face his democratic challenger, elizabeth colbert bush. she is the sister of political sat at that rift, stephen coal barrett. that would be an interesting race. it would take over the seat left vacant by tim scott, who was appointed to the u.s. senate. watch that south carolina race. >>> all right. back to the drawing board now in the cyprus after lawmakers reject a wildly unpopular plan to raid people's personal bank accounts. you can imagine why that didn't go over too well as part of their effort to secure a bailout from the eurozone and the imf without their help the tiny island's bank sector would most certainly collapse. that could potentially threaten other national economies. these things are often domino effects as you know. greg palkot is live in london. what is the latest on this deal, greg. >> reporter: you're right, martha. people are scrambling blink to prevent another way for cyprus to go bankrupt and dragging rest of europe down with it. in the cypriot
crossover because they're getting ready to run for election. there is a game play in the senate. this administration wants to show the american public that we can't cut $44 billion between now and september 30 without them experiencing massive pain. they have every intention to make it hurt to get the point that we need to spends every penny we are spending. which is absolutely ludicrous. it's a shame they are doing that because a lot of things -- we are going to have air traffic control towers shut down. they are not shut down because they are too expensive. on average, they cost $wo.3 million less per year to operate. they are shut down to come back with unionized employees in the regular air tower system. so things are not what they seem. we don't have a problem in front of us that we can't solve. what we have is a lack of leadersship and direction to get there. you can compromise on how you save medicare and social security. those compromises have been discussed. they are available. but it's the politics of how we position ourselves so we look good and get re-elected and the
elected? and if so, what's sort of been the response from the community to your position? >> i am elected. i'm in my third term and i've been the sheriff for ten and the response has been overwhelming. in the last 18 hours received over 6, 700 e-mails and out of those only ten have been negative. all the rest have been supportive. >> greta: no doubt in your mind, you're not going to enforce these two laws. >> there's absolutely no doubt in my mind i will not enforce these laws because i can't, i won't, i don't have the desire or the will to do it. >> greta: sheriff, thank you for joining us, sir. >> thank you for having me. >> greta: also tonight the possibility of congress approving an assault weapons ban just got slimmer. senate democratic leaders are now removing the ban from the gun control measure that the senate is set to debate. instead, the assault weapons ban will be offered later as an amendment. and that is according to a sponsor senator dianne feinstein and the senate majority leader, harry reid saying he's concerned for the assault position would block passage of any bill at

them to be free and freely elect and we're not happy-- >> and so we're going to give them-- >> we're not happy with the palestinian's decision to elect hamas, but we want those people to have freedom and them to decide. >> we're giving terrorists money. colonel west, why would we give terrorists money? >> well, i don't think we should be giving terrorists money. i think that that is going back to a chamberlain type of foreign policy appeasement. and originally whsecretary of state kerry went to egypt, wanted to meet with him and he refused to and it was not covered, you had protests in the united states of america, in egypt for supporting terrorists and the same in the west bank, leslie referred to, they're defacing pictures of president obama, throwing shoes at it and believe that the supposed to be quote, unquote insinuated in cairo have been turned back again. and when you talk about a two-state solution, you have to have a willing peace partner on the other side and not just that there's not really a two-state. you're talking potentially three-state solution because hamas and
all of a sudden. you get re-elected everybody loves each other. you know. absolutely. and i think that you have to remember that the prime minister of israel just formed a very fragile coalition government, and so the president, it's very shaky ground in israel, as well, in terms of his approval among israeli jews. many of them are sort of neutral about president obama. they don't dislike him but they don't adore him. and so for each man there is a big reason to show that they are in good for the other guy, to get some credit here in israel. and so, yes, there is good reason for each to show that all those old wounds are well on their way toward healing. nobody here is going to pretent that they don't have troubles. but they are showing that they can get along. >> keep looking for those smiles. thanks to jessica yellin in tel aviv this morning. we will come back to you over the course of the morning. this went from what was going to be a symbolic visit to one where all of a sudden there are urgent matters to discuss with the specter of chemical weapons possibly being used in syria
will do anything necessary to keep his job. he has six democratic senators out for re-election from very difficult states weapons bans an the clips. assault weapons been a gives -- assault weapon ban gives everyone a chance to vote on. it but the clips i bet they pass. >> dana: for those who support the second amendment and don't want to see the rights eroded because of a ill, mentally disturbed person who committed murder. the background check bill is bad. what are you hearing? >> eric: for that portion of gun control the other part is let's crack down on illegal traffics in place. i don't think either one of the clips and the assault weapons ban will pass. i predicted harry reid wouldn't get it on a bill on the senate floor. he has to raise his hand and he is last person to vote on that. there are 11 senators that don't want to jeopardize that. he would lose. he would lose either one of those. >> bob: he would lose on clips. >> it'd make a wager that both amendment fail. >> greg: i hate to use the phrase bigger story, because i banned that. this is what happens when you create law base
to eave it as it is. many voted in an unbelievable 33 times to repeal a ban appeal obamacare. on election night they lost that. in 2010, get ready for this. the obama administration has been so straightfoard and honest. nancy pelosi, harry reid, they have been honest people of public service. the cost of obamacare is now, that was just the early estimate. it had moved up to $1.1 billion. did i say billion? trillion dollars. $1.2 trillion. >> look at this, quite interesting adjustments. $1.1 trillion. than $1.2 trillion. well, the current estimate is $1.3 billion. the pattern will continue. twenty-one new taxes. twenty-one new taxes that will amount to $675 billion. this is getting expensive. among the most controversial, 2.6% tax. another $43,000. house republicans voted last summer to repeal this that they had installed it in th senate. senator orrihatch renew the effort today. he introduced a bipartisan amendment with nine democratic cosponsors to roll back that medical vice attacks. so what about presidentspromised to cut health care insurance premiums? $2500 per family. one study comm
the elections i think netanyahu thought he was in charge and he was rooting for mitt romney, lots of talk about potential attack on iran. the president has since won convincingly, netanyahu has lost some ground at home. i thought reading the pool reports that come back, netanyahu was complaining about all of the challenges he's facing putting together his new government and obama basically said, well, talk to me about it. look what my problems on capitol hill are, and netanyahu said, yeah, but we have more moving parts over here, parts in our country don't move at all, that's the problem. >> i had my doubts about whether or not he was going to shift netanyahu's opinion on him. i felt that from the -- remember that photototof netanyahu and obama sitting on the couch in the white house? >> the oval office. >> do you remember that? >> sure. being lectured. >> the whole body posture and so forth. but some of the video emerging from this trip is so authentic and even the words of netanyahu describing obama and what he means, what obama means to him in this relationship. a true friend. it was very au
side, who got elected with 90% plus of african american vote, and what we see happening in inner cities around the country with gun violence, you know, there's a lot of work that we have to do in our mritpolitical systems, but one of the key things is really deal with money in politics. the overwhelming reach that these lobby groups like the nra can have in drowning out the voice of every day people. >> cenk: yeah, i think you are right. the assault weapons and high capacity magazines, they dropped those already. diane i want to go back back to wayne lapierre. let's watch this together. >> the whole thing universal checks is a dishonest premise. there is not a bill on the hill that provides a universal check. the shooters in tucson and arrow, newtown, they are not going to be checked. they are unrecognizable. diane how do you respond to that? >> well, it -- the logic doesn't make sense. if you follow that through, criminals don't respond to any law, okay. so if we are going to follow that through we wouldn't have passed any laws. we need to put obstacles in th
t moving into the next cycle of e elections and announced yesterday he is going to spend $12 million of his own money in the senate races. these are not even senate races. these are in states where he thinks we can get the votes from senators for the gun safety measures that are now in the u.s. senate. so this is the influence of gun safety legislation, including the assault weapons ban that president obama wants out of the senate. on "meet the press" yesterday, michael bloomberg said yeah, it's my own money and i think it's certainly appropriate that this is the way that i spend it. >> if i can do that by spending some money and taking the nra from being the only voice to being one of the voices so the public can really understand the issues, then i think my money would be well spent and i think i have an obligation to do that. >> bill: yes, i remember he did won, his candidate, i for get her name right now won that special e ladies and gentlemen to take reverend -- not reverent but jesse jackson, junior's seat in chicago. she didn't have a prayer un
. they have an election this year. they have known for nine months. >> they have known this -- they know the russian dirty money. and they had to know that taxing, literally taxing deposits that are guaranteed is nothing but confiscation of private property. that in the -- even the dummy cypriots would be opposed to this. >> well, and they have got -- >> even got the french. >> no, but -- but it's -- and they let off the bond holders. they're not going to make the bond holders take a hit. so this was -- inexplicable, just like what happened in 2008, after bailing out bear stearns, fannie, freddie, decided to let lehman go down. said we're going to draw the line on lehman and 48 hours later nationalized aig and had to do trillions of dollars of guarantees to the financial system. so this was kind of a muck-up like that. inexplicable. they didn't want to be seen as baling out oil i gargs in an plex year, even though it was a small amount of money and that's how you get a rocky financial system collapsing. >> all right. don jensen, let me come back to the russian part of the story. whether
or she would like it to be a better country. you think? there are some that get managed to be elected to congress who secretly hope to bring this country down. i suppose that's possible. but don't count on a bunch hearings or high profile probes to do the job of finding them. i have to say that we've been here before. been there before. congresswoman bachmann, been there done that. nobody who remembers him wants very much to see it all happen again. thank god. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show," starts now. >> good evening americans. welcome to "the ed show." i'm eric michael dyson. after a decade of war,er with still uncovering lies that led us into conflict with iraq. turns out union busting governor john kay sick won't support unions either. ceo of starbucks serves up support for minimum wage increase. reverend jesse jackson joins me on public schools. >>> but first, bowling for columbine, i will ask michael moore why the need for gun control is even more urgent. this is "the ed show," and as ed would say, let's get to work. >>> we begin with an
and generosity of a victorious president who won the elections, does not have netanyahu threatening him, he can reach out and try to prove to them that he is a real friend and this demonization of him was totally wrong. >> now, according to the polls, and you know better than i whether the polls are accurate reflection, is israelis are suspicious of this president, despite the long-standing ties and generosity on the missile defense system and other security issues, there's a real sense he hasn't shown israel the love. other presidents didn't come in their first term, ronald reagan never came as president, but at the same time they expected him to come, especially after he went to cairo in 2009. can he reach on the floor his head to the israeli people. >> there are three interesting events. king hussein of jordan, almost an enemy, and the friendly bill clinton coming to israel and winning the hearts of israelis instantly, although their positions were very critical of israeli policy, definitely is a d saddat. the trick for president obama now, and i think this is exactly what he's trying to do.
